I've Been a Bad Bloggy Friend!

First off let me say that I am very sorry that I have been absent from commenting the last few days.

I am not trying to make excuses for this, but I do have 2 reasons.

First, I told you guys in my Haiku that I had fallen and hurt my knee. I hurt it pretty bad. The way it happened was that on Tuesday I wore my very favorite (at the moment) shoes. I had bought them at a resale shop called Plato's closet and I only paid $10. Because they are opened toe, if the weather is about 55 degrees, I wear them, no matter what.

On Tuesday it was going to be a high of 64 and, unfortunately, raining. When I got to work, I dried my shoes off pretty good on the mats, went to my desk, grabbed my coffee cup and waffle, and went to go to the canteen. (We call it that because it's a Scottish company and they call it that) I stepped off the carpet on to the tile and all of a sudden my feet were out from under me. I must have stepped on a wet spot on the floor and landed on my right knee. It's really too bad that I could stick the landing, and impress the judges a little bit. I am nothing if not graceful.




My knee swelled to 3 times it's size and throbbed like it had it's own heartbeat. I was too embarrassed to let on that I was really hurt, so I just went through the rest of my day as if nothing happened. That night all I did was lay on the couch icing it.

The next day it wasn't much better, I called my Chiropractor to cancel my appointment.

He talked me into coming in stating that he was in fact an actual doctor and he could look at it and tell me if I needed to go to get an x-ray. It turns out that I don't need one. Just some rest and ice.
Most of the time, when I'm not at work, I am on the couch icing my knee. It hurts, after a long day, to sit at my computer at home. (another reason Matt needs to buy me that laptop) But it is feeling much better now.

The second reason is actually some of your fault.

Last week I posted a little video of one of my favorite shows, Reaper. The comments that you guys left stated that it looked like another show, Dead Like Me.


I had never heard of it, so I looked it up online and was actually able to watch the first episode on YouTube. Matt and Emerson watched it with me and that's all it took. Last Friday, we went to Best Buy and bought the boxed set. It includes both seasons of the show and the movie.

So, shamefully, I have been on the couch icing my knee completely obsessed with the show Dead Like Me. But I'm back now and I will be commenting on all of your blogs.

Man that sucks (the knee, not that you've been a bad bloggy friend because you havent...you had good reason).


I was beginning to think you and Matt had so much fun with your new toys that you were at it again, actually.... *laffz*

heathersister said...

Ok, I am gonna call you Grace from now on (well, for a little while anyway). Did you wear those shoes for the rest of the day at work?!?

Talk about a bad bloggy friend. I haven't even posted since Wednesday, until today. Go check out my side bar. I made some updates you might enjoy. *wink, wink*

.....and do you know what is up with R Suzanna she hasn't posted all week?

I hope your knee gets better, fast!!

Oh enjoy the shows....I loved them!!

Kimmy said...

You poor thing! It sucks to fall. It sure isn't anything like when we were younger. Hope your knee feels better soon :O)

Rebecca Jo said...

Oh dang... hope you feel better...

And I have all the seasons of Dead like Me too ... loved that show!

Call Me Cate said...

I hope you recover soon. I've heard such good things about Dead Like Me but I've refused to let myself get involved yet. In the meantime, I somehow got hooked on Arrested Development.

Funny in my mind said...

I TOLD YOU YOU WOULD LOVE IT! I have watched both (and only) seasons so many times it is memorized. I watch it while I fold laundry usually so I do that a lot! Blame me! I will take the fall. Did you get the movie? Dead Like Me: Life After Death. awesome

I hope your knee feels better soon!

Tori_z said...

Ouch! Hope your knee heals up soon.

Becky said...

I am so glad you got Dead Like Me. It is a great show. Now if you REALLY want a good show to watch in a series with Matt (no kids for this one!) is Six Feet Under. It. Is. The. Bomb. I own the entire series. Love it!!!!

I am so sorry that your knee is hurt. You sound just like me, I totally would have done the same thing and acted like nothing was wrong all day. Hope it gets better soon!

Grand Pooba said...

Awe geez! That sucks!! Hope the knee gets back to regular size so you can go back to walking the runway :)

Queenie Jeannie said...

Oh ouch!!! You poor thing! I'm so sorry this happened to you.

BUT, at least you found something fun and new to kind of take your mind off of it, right?

This almost shouts workmen's comp!

Even if it was a crazy lady an' her crazy shoes!

I hope your knee is feeling better. I know exactly the pain you were feeling. I was at a friend's house a couple years ago, got too aggressive playing badminton, and fell right on my right knee. Wham! It swelled right up and stayed like that for a couple weeks, despite the icing every night. I still have yet to go to the doctor to have them look at my knee, and the crunching is getting worse. :-(

Somehow I missed this post... Years ago I broke my foot by falling on the rain slick marble floor leading into my office. I chalked it up to beiing a clutz... my boss insisted I file Worker's Comp and danged if I didn't get a rather nice settlement. Hope that knee is getting better and glad you had something to watch while letting it heal!
